My lighting needs are modest, at the "be seen" end of the scale. I had good results using a recent-vintage LED miniMaglite mounted to the handlebars with a DKG mount.
Then, as part of kitting my bike for touring and commuting, I got an Ortlieb front bag. The bag is great, but it extends above the level of handlebars enough that the light now shines on the bag, not the road.
Can anyone recommend a light mount that would lift the light about 4 inches off the handlebars? I'm not fixated on the Maglite -- I'd can get a different light if it comes with the sort of mount I'm looking for.
